SALISBURY — A Salisbury woman had methamphetamine and open containers of vodka in her vehicle at a Thursday morning traffic stop, according to the Salisbury Police Department.

Jennifer Layne Saylor, 40, of the 1200 block of Chez Charolais Road, was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance Schedule II, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, and misdemeanor having an open container of alcohol.

An officer pulled a Chevrolet Silverado over in the 800 block of Faith and Stratford roads because the driver made a stoplight violation, a report said. The officer also reported a license plate violation.

As the officer was writing Saylor a citation for the traffic violations, a backup officer spotted drugs in the passenger area of her vehicle.

The first officer found the drugs in a plastic bag. A K-9 unit was called to the scene and the dog alerted officers to a scent on the passenger side door. The officers found two bottles of Pinnacle Cranapple vodka and some unopened bottles.

The officer found a crystal-like substance that he believed to be meth. He also found a smoking device with the same crystal substance in it.

Saylor remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $2,500 secured bond.
